I'm at the Kelowna airport, having just stripped off my shoes and jacket in front of dozens of strangers at security. Ritual humiliation complete, I'm about to board the plane for Toronto and the Amazon First Novel Award festivities. Looking forward to seeing the other finalists and exchanging books. I'm planning to have all my copies signed, too--I love the scribble and cryptic messages . . .
I'm the author of All True Not a Lie In It (Knopf Canada 2015, Ecco USA 2016) and The Old Familiar (Thistledown 2008).
